This text was prepared by William Gross:

Interesting example of a work by an Ashkenazic sage printed in a Sephardic community, with enthusiastic approbations from prominent Sephardic rabbis. The author, kabbalist Rabbi Avraham Katz [d. c. 1800] was born in Lask, Poland. He then moved to Furth and then to Italy. In 1770 he immigrated to Jerusalem, and in 1780 he left on a fundraising mission to Ashkenaz, and then to Tunis and to Leghorn, where he printed this work. He returned to Jerusalem and was killed there in sanctification of G-d's name by the Turkish government c. 1800. Refer to: Avraham Yaari, Shluchei Eretz Yisrael, Jerusalem, 1951, p. 553-556. 18, 32 leaves. 20 cm
